    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    I sleep very little,

    and then at very odd hours. I love the night, and watching dawn break. If I sleep at night I still like to get up early.Maybe I'm strange. If you see me online, message me for a chat.

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    i stay awake at night to try to spend time with

    my tattoo artist boyfriend because he gets home late but he wants nothing to do with me. So I'm just up until 3 in the morning feeling alone. Basically by myself even though i'm a foot away from him.

    4:23am and going strong.

    I don't even like staying awake this late, but the forest and neighborhood definitely have a certain beauty to them at this time. Never gonna die:

    Eventually, insomnia is instilled in me.

    .. As if my biological clock is opposite the physical one, I love night as it is dark and tranquil, and try to sleep during the day not to let the kerfuffle annoy me.

    I'm writing this at 2 AM,

    and I don't think I'll be going to bed any time soon. Sleep is for the weak or something, right?

    I've never had a regular sleep schedule,

    nor do I plan to change that any time soon. I prefer to be up in the late hours of the night, talking to those who think the same. People call me crazy for it. I see no problem with it.

    Last night I made a post about how i'm trying

    to form better sleeping habits and I made a night time / sleep schedule. I stuck to it last night and tested it out - and it worked better then I thought it was going to go for the first time! I got about 7 hours of sleep, and I feel so refreshed this morning. Better then I've...

    Saturday nights are the worst,

    I just can't get myself off to bed for love nor money. Well into the early hours and when I finally manage to drag myself off to bed it's 3am. I snooze for a while and then wake up only to indulge in some more online activity - surfing, looking at recipes, playing a game or two...

    When I say I am a night owl,

    I mean I awake up around 5 pm and go to bed at 9 am. Late night hours is the best time for me to experience the peace and quiet I cherish.

    Well at least I used to be.

    I used to stay up ALL night long just on my computer. I think since I'm an introvert I am getting into that habit again.... I honestly dunno if that's a good thing or a bad thing... I guess it's both. Cuz the good part is you get to do whatever you basicly want...

    I embrace this. I am tired of being told I have

    to work at certain hours and get up at a certain time because that's what's socially acceptable. If other people don't get the magic of night time that's fine, more for the minority of us. Tired of being pc.

    The moon is out, the night is full of white

    light. Black tree skeletons against the light clouds. The quiet of the early hours. The hours when unusual waking causes reflection about things past, long gone, deep secret desires and fears. I wander naked through the thoughts until sounds from reality bring me back - wind...

    I love the tranquility of the nighttime.

    Everything just seems so peaceful. Sometimes I find myself sneaking out in the middle of the night just to go for a walk outside. (Only for my brother to blow up my phone texting me to come back inside) My favorite is when there's a full moon and it just kinda glows and lights...
